What better motivations exist for us to be people of integrity than that our children will be blessed for it! Parents who live with integrity and truthfulness, are wonderful examples to their children. Granted, this does not always guarantee that children will turn out perfectly, but children will nevertheless receive a great blessing from having such parents.
So what does it mean to “walk with integrity”? It means that “walk the talk.” In other words, plenty of people know the right thing to do, but when the right time comes, they don’t do it. They know they should tell the truth, for example, but if telling the truth will hurt, they opt for a lie instead. Children learn best from models they see and hear, but if they learn to bend the truth whenever needed, they set themselves up for problems in life. But if they learn to live with intregrity as modeled by their parents, relatives, teachers, and other role models, then they will have been greatly blessed.
WISE WAYS: Are you willing to walk with integrity in front of your children or those over whom you have influence? What kinds of blessings will they have from following your example?
